DRAIVER is integrated with Uber. While you aren't required to have a personal Uber account and app, it is a good idea to have one.
There are some instances where you may need to order and expense an rideshare ride using your own Uber, Lyft or other rideshare app. While this is a rare occurrence, it is something you should be prepared for before starting a trip with rideshare.
Also, you need to "Opt in” to receive updates and text messages from Uber for the Uber rides that ordered and paid for through the DRAIVER App. You can do this by texting "START” to 89203.
